  1. i'vehadtochangemyname on

    What a great place to be with one game to go in 2016 – I ‘d hoped for it but I didn’t think we’d get the degree of consistency we’ve had. At some stage, injuries could change our season dramatically but we’ve given ourselves some breathing space and BR has brought cover and competition to every position in the team – what an achievement! And we’ve still got the January transfer window to go – who knows, we could bring in a better player.

     

     

    Saturday should be good. New rangers are much improved since we last saw them but are still a limited team in terms of clinical quality. We only beat them by one goal last time, however we are far better team and squad now. Looking forward to the winning streak continuing.

  2. HAMILTONTIM,

     

     

    I think its to commemorate the time that the then Rangers failed to act on Safety Advisors reports about “Stairway 13”.This failure to act,caused the deaths of 66 rangers fans on a New Years game at Ibrox.

    Yeah I got the gist but for me Wenger is a failure in that he’s won berry little with the resources he has,

     

     

    As for our defence, we finally have a settled pairing in the Central area, big Lustig has played well this seasonin whatever position he has been asked to play while Izzie and Gamboa appear to be our weakest link in a string defence. With KT to come back, a lad who is a Celtic supporter playing for his heroes it’s unlikely he will leave any time in the next 4 years IMO. He’ll want to play fir Celtic under Brendan and learn his role for the foreseeable in the hoops. The way we play now with passing across the back 4 attempting to draw out parked buses we are always liable to the occasional mistake but I can live with that. And with Broony in the side he always makes a great fifth defender when required drawing back covering defenders out if position and when we have a corner or free kick.

     

     

    Right now we are almost getting MOM performances from Broony,Armstrong, Rogic, Jozo and Eric every game. Eric’s height is not an issue as his reading if the game is so go and him and Jozo are forming a formidable central position. These guys are still all relatively young in football terms, Broony apart.

     

     

    I’m happy with what I am seeing right now.

     

     

    We need to be a little more consistent in front of goal though with regards chances to goals ratio.

     

     

    It’s great watching this team/squad form, learn and put into practice Brendan’s instruction. We are only going to get better and I trust BR’s decisions on field and on any transfer in or out he seems necessary. I only hope now that all decisions are 100% his with support from above.

  4. The amount of rules that come to birth when this lot of cheating b……s are involved are astounding, honest ti f… I swear the make them up as the go along.

     

     

    Rob Kiernan looks like escaping retrospective punishment for a televised punch because SFA Compliance Officer Tony McGlennan is on holiday!

     

     

    The Sevco defender had a night to forget as he set up St Johnstone’s equaliser in a 1-1 draw and punched Stevie Anderson in front of the BT Sport cameras.

     

     

    Referee Crawford Allan also missed the incident and according to a report in The Sun Kiernan will escape retrospective punishment because McGlennan is on holiday.

    It seems incredible that a high profile well funded organisation like the SFA are unable to apply justice within 24 hours for a referee’s honest mistake although the cynics may suggest that allowing the former Yeovil and Accrington star to play against Celtic on Saturday is a club punishment.

    Speaking after the match Anderson told The Sun: “Kiernan punching me? It was a corner and he caught me in the ribs. Brian Easton saw it as well. It was a clear punch.

     

     

    “If that’s the way he wants to play, it’s up to him — but he’s going to get done for it.

     

     

    “You can’t do that in football games. If it gets highlighted then he deserves it.

     

     

    “There was nothing happened before it. I was marking him at a corner and there was a bit of argy bargy — then he punched me.

     

     

    “The referee said he did not see it and you can understand it because there was a lot going on in the box. The linesman has probably not seen it either.”

     

     

    Kiernan is apparently a £2m transfer target for Fulham but even the hyped up English market will realise that a deal could probably be done with one zero dropping off that figure.

  5. I was searching out “is ibrox falling down” on the net there.

     

     

    Came across some of the super casino, floating pitch, development.

     

     

    There is gullible and there is gullible, a thread on angers media actually says “what happened to the development”

     

     

    the answers –

     

     

    “glasgow council tims wouldnt give planning permission”

     

     

    there is another link – jan 2014, where someone is talking about the development being back on – just 3 weeks before they declared administration.

  6. Brendan says we will get better in the 2nd half of the season, maybe with 1 or 2 new players to take us on.

     

     

     

    canny wait.

  7. Minutes silences are normally held on nearest game after an anniversary of this type. I haven’t seen anything official from Huns so I don’t think there will be won at this game. But that may change!

  8. I’VEHADTOCHANGEMYNAME on 29TH DECEMBER 2016 2:08 PM,

     

     

    I have no idea what you are basing your”Far better team now”quote on.They are much worse now than then.

     

    They have a very poor defence,a midfield who cannot play together,a forward line who boast a leading scorer with 3 goals.A manager who has no idea how to change a game,does not know his best team.

     

    The table does not lie.Look at their goal average.Remember in the 5-1 game they had their Marquee signings,Barton and Krancjar playing.Now replaced with Holt and some other lower league nobody.

     

    I honestly would rate this game the same as playing Ross County,Motherwell.

  9. Tony,

     

     

    He will be banned for it.It was highlighted and the injured party has complained After the winter break,he will face a 3 match ban.My only problem is,with the winter break scheduled to start on Monday,why the guy is on Holiday now.It could be personal,or family,so wont say too much on that..

    Cheers I’m sure the huge majority of Tims will observe it impeccably.

     

     

    Well I hope so,I thought I heard a few “Coughs”at the last one.

     

    Coughing ,in January,in Winter !!!!!.Whoever heard of such a thing ?.Not Bill Leckie ,it seemed.

  11. BT

     

     

    Good to hear. Is it a tramadol concoction? I’m on those when required for pain in gut with Diverticular disease. Don’t like taking them as they space me out and I can’t drive. Literally a pain in the arse! :@-)))

  12. I posted on JJ’s blog this morning asking what use netting would be if it appears the roof problem is to do wth the cantilever beams. While I was at it, I offered a few suggestions he might take on board should he want to develope his blog into something believable and substantial. Needless to say my post remains in moderation

  13. Are we really worried about somebody called a Rob Kiernan playing? It’ll be more of a Hinderance to them if they lose him for a game after break than it will be if they lose him to the game against us. Their best 11 does not have a look in for Saturday.

     

     

    4-0 will Armstrong scoring the first.

  14. 2016 is to be a second longer than most years, it has been announced 15:06

     

     

     

    Except at Ibrox on Saturday if Celtic are winning 1-0.It will be 5 minutes.

  15. Aye, I know rules should be applied evenly but we’ve a signed up to watch these rules be applied unevenly. With our PLC cowards facilitating it is what it is!

  16. Good result last night, only saw highlights so cannot comment too much.

     

    On to Saturday, but first I have a tapas feast to serve up tonight, the Lhad will be sampling some of my tapasfor the first time, so he may be a little queasy up the West End tonight. Patatas bravas, morcilla in spiced apples, lamb in smoked paprika lentils, Russian salad and some calamari in tomato sauce.

     

    Wee bottle of Rioja to wash it down. Muy buen.

  17. blantyretim is praying for the Knox family on

    That’s some post mate

     

     

    The more things change the more they stay the same

     

     

    I was in my granny’s house that night in 71

     

     

    Lots of my uncles at the game, we didn’t know which end the accident happened.

     

     

    Thank god all my uncles got home safe and god rest the poor victims

     

     

    The rangers are a shower it seems always have been always will

  19. The Huns are sitting second top of our league.

     

    It would be silly to dismiss that fact.

     

     

    Thank God BR will not be complacent. He will do his homework and prepare his team in a professional manner .If we fail to prepare and all that. Cliche but nevertheless, very true.

    leaving games early, you know my mum and I obviously had to always nip out a wee bit before the end.

     

    Man U game saw Naka free kick on wee tellie in bowels of North stand.

     

    Luckily I can’t remember any any other ends of games I missed !

     

    btw copied you in on a mail to oldtim in case you see him first as there is a bit of detail in it

     

    he may find easier working over with another pair of eyes.

    When has that ever stopped the hun from having a min silence ?

     

    They’ll do as much as they can to take the drubbing they’re about to get away from the back pages onto the front pages.

     

     

    Scum then……………….Scum now !!!!

  23. CultsBhoy - Believes in Brendan on

    Hunch in Ibrokes ‘fortress’ roared on by the hatred of their deluded followers will have no choice but to try and attack throughout the game. That’s a lovely prospect for Celtic…no parked bus and acres of pace against old slow hopeless defenders…the pressure on these nearly men will tell..especially as they are led by a very limited purist accompanied by a hopelessly naive assistant..

     

     

    I expect a doing to be dolled out to Hunco on Saturday. 3-0 minimum

  24. We will lose games of football. It maybe on Saturday. But, with Brendan in charge we will win far more than we lose and more importantly, win more “big” games.

     

     

    That interview drips with respect. But, we all know that his “I haven’t really watched them” barb, is bull. Meticulous is his middle name. He knows it will be tough. Like we all do.

     

     

    Hopefully, we go there and dominate and win. One last hurrah before a three week shutdown and some winter sun.

    Only thing you forgot to factor in is McLEAN, and he will have a say in the proceedings big time.
